    I know this sounds crazy and perhaps a bit eeeewy, but I love it on a bed of lettuce w/some tuna and a bit of french dressing and some sunflower seeds.

    My wife made ice cream out of it yesterday. Consistency isn't as good as real ice cream. Tasted like cheesecake. Pretty good!

    Typically I eat it with cracked pepper though.

    Do you know how she made an ice cream out of it?

    It involved a blender, vodka, and some magic.

    And a recipe: http://www.sugoodsweets.com/blog/2007/09/cottagecheese-icecream/#sthash.9cugXaCh.dpbs

    Plain or with crushed black pepper (glad I'm not the only one who does this!)

    If I'm looking for something sweeter, I'll eat it with chopped up cantaloupe.

    It's also used in one of my FAVORITE go-to vegetarian recipes...quinoa lasagna http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/quinoa_lasagna.html nom.

    I top mine with Busch's Baked Beans. Doesn't matter if they are cold, or hot. It's sooo yummy! :bigsmile: I also love cottage cheese and radishes. Mmm....I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

    In pancakes,
    as substitute for ricotta in any dish,
    mixed with applesauce,
    or with fresh fruit.

    My favorite fruits with cottage cheese are the stone fruits, though I like blueberries and strawberries with it, too.

    Sounds strange, but it's incredibly good with tuna and avocado. Make it like a salad, or on a sandwich. Otherwise I love it with sliced strawberries.

    My favorite breakfast recently is the ezekiel cinnamon raisin english muffins, cut in half and toasted with a 1/4 cup of cottage cheese on each half. I tried it with greek yogurt, but I didn't like it.

    Love it on fresh tomatoes!

    But, I also have a recipe for a "lasagna" casserole my mom makes that used cottage cheese that's but it's delicious:

    We call it "Cheapy Lasagna"
    1lb ground beef or turkey
    1 can tomato paste
    1 can tomato sauce
    8 oz sour cream
    8 oz cottage cheese
    extra wide egg noodles
    cheddar cheese (or whatever you like) for shredding on top

    brown meat per package instructions, season to taste, drain, stir in both tomato cans.
    cook pasta per package instructions, drain, stir in sour cream and cottage cheese.
    In a large baking dish, layer noodle mix first, then meat/sauce mix, noodle mix, etc...
    Shred cheese on top, bake until the cheese browns

    Now I am really hungry...

    Edit: I just used the recipe calculator for MFP and found out it's less than 500 calories per serving, too. :happy:
    That sounds fantastic!
